December 2010 was believed to be the coldest since records began in 1910 according to the MET office. The arctic conditions took hold of the UK as temperatures plummeted with snow causing chaos in many regions.
Gritting.com worked hard in the off season to ensure the appropriate infrastructure wass built so that as a Company we could withstand testing winter months. In November and December 2010 Gritting.com’s customers reaped the rewards of all this hard work. The calculated investment in snow clearance allowed our customers to access a quality service that could cope adequately with such heavy snow fall. We increased our Teams and also our capability to store salt, all of which allowed the service to grow and develop in, what was, another incredibly cold year.
Managing Director Chris Rymer expressed his delight on how the Company coped in the latter stages of 2010, he stated “Gritting.com decided as a company to invest in all winter services and this allowed the retention and growth of our clientele. We have safeguarded our customer’s premises and kept hospitals, schools and businesses open and provided a reliable and trusted service. December tested every aspect of our business but I am very pleased with how we efficiently reacted to the conditions and the effort of every Team member”.
